« Still a big mess but now you pay more for it »

Published on 11/09/17 at 04:14
Value For Money : Poor
Audience: Advanced Users
Decade-old bugs not patched, same chaotic layout, still hundreds of plugins to sift through to find a workaround for a bug or a feature that should already be in the core program, the transport is still so rudimentary that it's practically useless, still can't control note velocity when entering notes, no copy and paste in all pop-up menus, Sibelius Sounds library is awful... and to add insult to injury, Avid now forces everyone to license this piece of crap EVERY YEAR. Instead of fixing anything, Avid and its ardent enablers will insist an obvious bug is not bug but how the program works or they're not receiving complaints about that bug or a fix is under consideration or they flatly refuse to fix the bug, and, of course, the old standby "You must be doing something wrong" or "It must be a problem specific to your system." I've heard these lame excuses for years. Such blind arrogance is why this program will remain a bloated piece of crap until Avid finally goes out of business. Hopefully sooner than later.
